A little eye candy for you

This Mom can hardly hold her excitement in because as you can see FOOTBALL is right around the corner. Tackle football no less! I have been waiting for this year since, oh I don't know, we found out Jaxon was going to be a boy! You think I'm kidding...I AM NOT! Football is my very favorite sport to watch. Something about kicking somebody's butt on the field and not getting in trouble just appeals to me. I know I know I probably need some serious counseling, I already knew that. It really isn't just the actual playing of the sport. It is the whole kit and kaboodle. The band coming out on the field, the drumline, the National Anthem, the cheerleaders getting the crowd revved up for their team, the fans, even the stinkin announcers! I love the energy about the whole game! If you ask me nothing better. Now I get to cheer my boy on to get in there and kick some booty! Oh my goodness I just can't wait. We will be in football mode for weeks months even. I am getting butterflies in my belly just thinking about it.
I love pictures of teams with their backs to us and names on jerseys.

Walking into the first practice. He wasn't even nervous just excited! I was too. Ed and I stayed to watch for about a half hour. I told Ed what is there to watch at this point?? But before we knew it a half hour had passed and we really didn't want to leave but we had things to do other than staying there for 3 hours! Love it!
On to the eye candy!

Here are some pictures of some of the projects I have done in the last couple of months. The layout above is for our calendar kit that will be coming out soon. It happens to have one of my favorite pics of my kids from last summer. It is a great calendar kit. Pick one up at Michaels.

These next next few pics are from the box kit that I did for the make and take at CHA consumer show this past week. A 10 minute project start to finish. Everything I used came in the kit except for one soft spoken sheet. I did not ink, distress, or add ribbons. Very easy to do for the beginner scrapbooker. Some of the gals at my table were saying speed scrapbooking at it's best!

This is the front cover. Again no inking or any added elements. Just strictly what came in the kit and the added soft spoken. Oh and some cardstock.
I did decorative punch one page to give them an idea of what they could do with it once they got home.

What I really like about this box kit is that you can make a mini album and put it back into its' original box and wrap it up for a gift. We have them at Michael's of course. You could also check with your LSS to see if they carry them as well. There a few different kinds. Love, baby boy, baby girl and of course "A Kid Like Me". Not sure if any of you know or have seen that we brought back our original stick kids in honor of Mambi's 10 year anniversary! Can't believe that it has been 10 years!
